Play Your Tits Off - The FHF Round One Preview: Defence

Francis Bouillon poses with Zdeno Chara.

Habs - with DOOM in the lineup, you would have to say this corps has it all. A scoring touch in All-Star Andrei Markov (we never did came up with a good nickname), DOOM as the physical presence, Hamr as the veteran presence, Franky B as the energy presence, Rhino as the rookie presence, and the rest. Without DOOM in the lineup, we've got the Breezer presence. Pray for DOOM to be in the lineup.

The stripper they be - an up and coming 22-year old brunette who's getting her shit together and may show signs of brilliance on any given night. You're happy to lay out a few tens, but still feel her best is yet to come.

B's - as a unit pretty stingy, ranking ahead of the Habs in goals against (barely), though that might be due to Julien's defence-first system. Individually it's all about the big man, who while he may be somewhat maligned, still logged 27 minutes a game and was the B's third-leading scorer with 51 points. I don't know any other Bruins D.

The stripper they be - a solid if unspectacular performer you can rely on, but you're not pretending she likes you or anything.

Edge - with DOOM 100%, Habs for sure. Without DOOM, much closer.

I'm fairly new here as we only just got internet access here on the inside. I like your site (considering you're lawyers). We're not allowed access to the 'interesting sites', so your pics are welcomed. Guess they don't want the screens and keyboards gummed up...

Anyway, just a comment on the nicknames. We referred to #8 as Tank, but DOOM is better. Rhino is excellent for O'Byrne. I like Bean for Markov cuz he looks like Mr. Bean. Other guys call him the Marksman for his precision passes (and the Mark part...)

Enjoy your blog. Habs in 4. 15 goals for, 5 against.
4-1
3-0
5-3
3-1

Sounds great, inmate4. Make sure you tell the rest of the guys that we didn't come up with Rhino ... that was Robert over at Eyes on the Prize (check him out too, he's genius!)

@Fezworth...oh hell yeah buddy, can't wait to meet you and Bryan.

@inmate4 - welcome! Bean and Marksman are both pretty good. THe only thing I could think of was "Android" or something like that - you know, emotionless.

Go Hockey!

Markov goes down smooth on the ice, call him Vodkov.
